Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite U200-161

80% Toshiba Satellite U200-161

Having had doubts at first, the Toshiba U200-161 has certainly proved to be more than capable. Performance is solid, and the excellent battery life and a high quality display help make it a good all rounder for home and business use. It only misses out on a Recommended award due to annoyances such as the lack of Bluetooth, the unusual keyboard layout and the minor backlight bleeding. If you can put up with these, and the price should certainly help alleviate the pain, then the U200-161 is great little buy.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
